Cyrnai / Dan Joseph - Hypno-Seizure

Cassette, C60
Label : Self-released, US, 1988
Cassette provided by Franck Laplaine

When that tape was released, Stéphane Santini (SFCR) told me the Dan Joseph side was brilliant but I never had the possibility to listen to it until recently. Now I can say he was right ! Reminds me a little "Numena" by Robert Rich, in a Tangerine Dream vein. The Cyrnai side is great too, between minimal synth and experimental, not unlike some Bene Gesserit.
More Dan Joseph tapes will be posted in the future...

Tracklist :

A. Cyrnai - Untitled
B. Dan Joseph - Untitled

Big City Orchestra - Des Feurs

Cassette, C60
Unreleased, 1989
Gracefully offered by Das

The cover of that "Des Feurs" cassette is in the archives section of Big City Orchestra website but I was quite sure that We Never Sleep never released anything by them as I knew that label very well at the time... Recently, I wrote Das about that mystery and he answered that "Des Feurs" was supposed to be released by We Never Sleep but finally never was, though promo copies were sent. So I proposed him to offer it for free download, to close our long series of Big City Orchestra posts. Don't miss it, it's an excellent album, with good sound quality. Many thanks to Das for offering that wonderful gift and, again, to Wackelpeter for ripping those 22 rare Big City Orchestra cassettes !
